> DESCRIPTION

Passion #2 is the second and final episode in the series in which the museum collection and Collection Belfius meet.
Central within Passion #2 is the work Riffs by Ann Veronica Janssens: this installation, purchased by Mu.ZEE in 2009, consists of thirteen videos. The display resembles a light laboratory. ‘Riffs’ is a concept from the field of music world and refers to a rhythmic base pattern. The videos were all created between 2006 and 2008 and the recordings, which each have a different sound rhythm, were made in various locations and in different countries. This installation will be seen for the first time in Mu.ZEE. Light and rhythm are two of the elements that modern and contemporary artists often unite: Walter Leblanc, Jef Verheyen, Emile Claus, Marcel-Louis Baugniet, Léon de Smet, René Guiette and Luc Tuymans... all create the story of Passion #2. James Ensor literally radiates with the etching Les étoiles en fusion (The Stars in the Cemetery) from 1888. A second cahier will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.
